ADOPTED 0N 12-06-15 - Wilma is described by her loving southern foster who watches over her every need as “a sweet and loving dog who responds well to instructions; she fits right in without any hesitation. Likes to fetch, play with stuffed animals, she is a quick learner and has come a long way in a very short time. She has a slight limp and our vet said that it is not painful and does not affect her health. We can only imagine that she could have been hurt while she was in the wild with a wide variety of wild animals that inhabit its wetlands, forests and swamps that are looking for food.

Found in a rural wooded area in Louisiana, shivering and starving, this spirited little puppy and her siblings were rescued by their southern rescuer that could not leave them there. When she came upon them, they were about 3 weeks old, covered with fleas but healthy playful little babies—momma did a good job taking care of them. Thanks to a hero that already has as many as 10 dogs on her property, a 20 month old baby and a warm loving heart, these babies were scooped up in her arms, wrapped in a warm blanket and taken to her home.
Through no fault of their own, dogs in the south are left by the road to make it on their own, over and over again. Wilma and her 4 siblings were victims of being born in a place where there are many dogs and no solutions. Their story is heartfelt, we can’t ever envision having 15 dogs in our own home, nerveless, puppies but a rescuer’s spirit is pure and giving. Puppies come into this world with a clean slate. Wilma’s life is full of play, good food, afternoon naps in the sun and kisses daily from his rescuer that examines every spot on her.
Wilma is a very healthy and playful little girl! She has never been around cats but of course, does well around dogs. She is around a 20 month old child and older dogs and she does well. She joins in and enjoys playing chase, and "fetch" in the yard. Her foster mom loves sitting on the ground with the dogs and Wilma makes sure that she gets a belly rub! Wilma and her sisters and brother are all still babies and will need lots of attention, time and patience.
Wilma is in excellent health, ready to leap into your heart and go to her FUR-ever home. If you are the type that want to make a difference this year to a deserving dog in need, she will thank you every day and fill your life with laughter and licks. Our adopters are the most wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue story, and the first chapter of their new forever lives!
Personality and temperament aren't cast in stone at birth. Puppies come in to this world with a clean slate and at this age their personalities have not been formed, they are all sweet and innocent. The following is the personality of the Black Mouth Cur:
ABOUT THE BREED
The Cur breed has been known to possess the toughness and courage to confront a very angry, very large cat and Curs have learned to be decisive and valiant. They are also known to be silent which makes them an excellent guard dog. Cur’s are noted and admired for their courage; they are willing to face a squealing razorback or an angry wildcat when it is cornered. They also have a strong desire to please its master. They are very protective of the property and family; nevertheless, without an owner who is more dominant than itself, it can become over-protective.
Cur dogs are highly intelligent, good-natured, very willing and eager to please. They love to play, especially in water, never wanting to pass up the opportunity for a good swim.
These lively dogs have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human leadership and need to feel as though they are part of the family and are easily trained. This breed of dog is wonderful with people of all ages, interact well with children.
When in the presence of children BMCs have a tendency to diminish their playfulness and become gentler and protective. Thee BMC gets along well with children they are known for its sweet and gentle approach to small children. The BMC enjoys spending time outdoors, playing games such as tug-of-war and fetch, and having plenty of room to roam, run, and play.
BMCs are very clean animals that don’t like to soil their space. Crate training a puppy or dog is highly recommended for those times when you cannot directly supervise the dog. Later the puppy will be old enough to be trusted alone in the house. Except at night when he should go to sleep, do not use to crate for longer than three to four hours in the day. Nor should you use it as punishment as the puppy will view the crate as discipline and hate going into it.
DURING THE HOUSEBREAKING PHASE
It is recommended to feed your dog on a regular schedule. The biggest problem is once a puppy has had one accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the puppy detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If you keep the house clean and pour some urine outside where you want her to go and then praise her when he marks there you will find house-breaking goes very easily.
BMCs are quite fearless, however, they are very dedicated to its family. These dogs thrive on strong and dependable relationships with humans, love attention and playing the role of guardian. This breed is very intelligent and generally easy to train. As a pet, the BMC is obedient, loyal, loving, and very affectionate.
OTHER PET COMPATIBILITY
The BMC was bred as a homestead dog that would protect its family and home against intruders. This means that a well-bred BMC is territorial. Most BMCs off their "turf" work well with other dogs, but on their family property will chase the same dog away. Their turf can be viewed by the dog as the family’s home, land, truck, or sometimes proximity to "their person".’
If you want a very friendly dog, socialize early and with a variety of people and dogs of different ages, sex, and situations. Enrollment in an obedience class is recommended so they can meet new dogs and people in a controlled environment.
Due to its outgoing attitude and eagerness to please and impress its owner, the BMC generally responds very well to basic training and commands. This bright breed has the ability to learn to perform most any task its trainer is willing to take the time to teach. Establishing immediate dominance, trust, and respect is key to successfully training the BMC. These dogs require a confident, patient, and caring handler with a strong gentle approach to repetitive exercises and tasks.
BENEFITS OF THE BREED
The Cur has a burning desire to please his master. There are many benefits to owning a BMC, such as its no hassle, low maintenance coat. This curious breed is always on the go, and often quite amusing and entertaining to watch while at play. These dogs are alert and territorial, making effective watchdogs by announcing the arrival of guests and unwanted visitors, and serving as a deterrent to would-be intruders. The BMC is obedient, loyal, loving, and very affectionate, making an excellent working dog, family pet, and companion alike
Most of the Cur breeds have and are allowed natural bobtails; some do not. The bobtail is an advantage because you won't have to worry about stepping on their tail, closing the door on it, or the tail cleaning off the table with a clean sweep. The bobtail does not affect the performance of the dog and therefore the "cur tailing" tail is a mark of the breed, hence, Black Mouth Cur.
PUPPIES BEHAVIOR, GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT
Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.
One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute - everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible - it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
